Aphex Twin Biography (Wikipedia)

Richard David James (born 18 August 1971), best known by the stage name Aphex Twin, is an English electronic musician. He is best known for his idiosyncratic work in styles such as techno, ambient, and intelligent dance music during the 1990s. In 2001, Guardian journalist Paul Lester called James "the most inventive and influential figure in contemporary electronic music".

Raised in Cornwall, James began releasing records in the early 1990s under aliases such as AFX and Polygon Window, and co-founded the independent label Rephlex Records in 1991. He attracted early acclaim for his 1992 debut album Selected Ambient Works 85–92. He signed to UK electronic label Warp the following year, and later rose to mainstream popularity with the charting singles "Come to Daddy" (1997) and "Windowlicker" (1999), backed by music videos directed by Chris Cunningham.

After releasing the album Drukqs in 2001, James proceeded to release music under other aliases, including the 2005 Analord EP series as AFX, a pair of 2007 releases as the Tuss, and archival material such as an unreleased 1994 LP in 2014 as Caustic Window. James returned as Aphex Twin in 2014 with the album Syro, which won a Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album.
